Sporty accents on the short rear end come in the form of the RS-specific diffuser insert, the oval tailpipes of the RS exhaust system and the vertical air outlets on the outer edges of the LED rear lights. A surface-mounted spoiler lip in black, or optionally in carbon, rounds out the image.

Despite sharing the same wheelbase and a similar height and length with the previous generation, from the side Honda new 2018 Odyssey looks longer, lower and more athletic. Front-end features - in particular, the lighting - wrap around to the body sides more emphatically. The model characteristic Z-shaped "lightning bolt" side character lines are more strongly developed, new character lines on the doors add light contrast and visual intrigue, and a new partial black-out treatment for the D-pillar lends the appearance of the Odyssey tapered roof "floating" over the cabin greenhouse.
Niamh Hart Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. Multiple grades of high-strength steel are used in the Odyssey body construction to help achieve excellent overall vehicle dynamics, optimize safety performance, reduce weight, and lower noise, vibration and harshness (NVH). The combination of advanced materials and evolved engineering processes save 75 lbs. in unit-body weight compared to the previous-generation Odyssey. The 2018 Honda Odyssey features several unique advancements in body design and materials that significantly improve overall rigidity, while reducing weight. This directly helps improve overall vehicle dynamics, crash safety performance, interior quietness, and long-term durability.
Millie Lowe Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. Powering the 2018 Honda Odyssey is a 3.5-liter direct injected i-VTEC® 24-valve SOHC V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management™ (VCM™). The new engine is common with the powerplant in the 2017 Pilot and is mated to one of two new transmissions - a 9-speed automatic (9AT), also introduced in the Pilot, for LX, EX, EX-L and EX-L NR trims, and an all-new minivan and front wheel drive-first 10-speed automatic (10AT) for Touring and Elite models. For the first time ever, all Odyssey models are equipped with steering wheel mounted paddle shifters, to give drivers greater control over transmission operation, which is particularly useful in mountainous driving or when towing. Models equipped with the new 10AT also have a new Idle-Stop capability, which further enhances fuel efficiency.
Mollie Slater Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:29. Odyssey EX, EX-L, Touring and Elite trims have bright, distinctive LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL). A signature design feature of the new Odyssey, the DRLs utilize Honda characteristic wing shape positioned below and beside the low-beam headlights. Shaped to match the modern, elegant and athletic look of the new Odyssey, the LED DRL array tapers as it moves from the body side toward the inside of the headlight lens. Stylistically, the DRLs strongly and clearly define the front corners of the Odyssey.
Caitlin Duncan Honda, 2017-10-19 15:02:28. Located behind the instrument panel, the Honda Odyssey cast magnesium steering hanger beam replaces the multi-part steel unit in the previous Odyssey. Its purpose is as a structural attachment point for the steering column and instrument panel, as well as a structural element that helps the passenger cabin retain its shape in certain collisions. For the first time, the Odyssey body structure also utilizes composite materials to further reduce weight while enhancing rigidity and noise dampening. One example is inside the C-pillars, where composite stiffeners, together with the structural foam mentioned above help improve body rigidity. Another example is the base that supports the Odyssey battery. Created from a single composite casting, it holds the battery securely while adding minimal weight to the overall body structure, saving 2.9 lbs. over the previous Odyssey.

Tuned specifically to attenuate wind-, urban- and traffic-noise frequencies, the acoustic windshield uses an outer layer of 2.0 mm safety glass, a 0.7 mm thick middle layer of acoustic polyvinyl butyral (PVB) and a 2.0 mm inner layer for a total thickness of 4.7 mm - an increase over the 4.5mm thickness of the previous-generation Honda Odyssey windshield. This helps the Odyssey place at the top of its class in wind-noise performance.
